Guides Hope Public Will Have Big Love For Polygamy Tours

Has Big Love only intensified your curiosity about the mysterious lives of polygamists? Perhaps you should book your next vacation to Arizona, where former fundamentalist Mormons have launched a tour of a polygamous colony.

Starting next weekend, outsiders will get an inside look with "The Polygamy Experience: A Guided Tour of Colorado City." The tour is not for the passingly curious, as it lasts four hours and involves meetings with people who have been exiled by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Even so, it promises to be respectful. The guides will educate tourists on the history of fundamentalist Mormonism and explain why they take more than one wife in the first place. Paying customers will also learn what's behind the prairie dresses and long braids.

The tour costs $70 for adults and $60 for children (children, really?). Would you shell out the money to see polygamy up close?

I wouldn't pay for this, personally. It kind of reminds me of the tours of the long-necked women of Asia or something similar where they're paraded around as circus freaks. Maybe that's a little extreme, but that's what popped into my head. ::shrug::

I would totally do it! Polygamy interests me so much. I mean... not in a participating way.

while polygamy is interesting, this is a weird concept and i'd never pay for it...i could get the same information from books imagine telling someone you went on vacation and this is what you chose to do with your time and money?
